Currently, we only have one car. My husband works minimum 10 hour days Monday through Thursday so there's a lot of hours in the week when Olivia and I are at home. It is quite a challenge to keep her busy and entertained! Being an only child, she depends on me to be her playmate. So, I try to come up with fun activities that are also educational.
Recently I had the idea to go on a "photo walk". Olivia loves to take pictures, especially of animals, so I thought it would be a nice way to get outside, move around and learn a little while having fun. I allowed her to hang the camera around her neck and take all the photos on her own. Very exciting. :)
She really enjoyed pointing out the pretty flowers and trees. It gave me lots of teaching opportunities when she would see birds nests, rocks, and other little pieces of nature. I even warned her of the dangers of smoking when we came across some cigarette butts. :)
What a fun age she is at right now. So inquisitive and still full of wonder at God's creation. I love my girl. <3
